Can Someone Please Hand Me The Phone Book?

Patty Murray and Babs Boxer, intellectual giants of the Senate. It's a low bar.

You may remember a Rasmussen poll a while back that found 45% of U.S. voters felt the U.S. would be better off if Congressmen were selected randomly from the phone book.

Well that’s just the crazy talkin’, right? Everyone knows our elected officials are the nation’s elite, the best and the brightest, the cream of the crop, head and shoulders above the common citizen. Or not.

Of course there’s no way to know what level of government the people taking the test served but but it does make you wonder, could your Congressmen pass?
